At Oceans 5 Dive Resort, located on Gili Air, Lombok in Indonesia all remaining PADI Instructor Development Courses of the year 2018 are taking place according to schedule.

No one wants to go through a natural disaster. Unfortunately they are part of life and happen occasionally around the globe. Recently Nusa Tengara Barat (Indonesian province where Lombok and the Gili Islands are part of) had its share. A series of earthquakes terrorized the region. The situation is dire in the north of Lombok, where basic commodities like drinking water and food are not easy to come by. Other areas like the Gili Islands are more fortunate and are full on rebuilding to re-open businesses and get the local economy running again.

The importance of getting life back on track can’t be stressed enough. A lot of locals from the most affected areas are employed in the regional tourism industry and depend on their weekly wages to break the struggle.

Oceans 5 Dive Resort opened up their doors on the 21st of August. A short while later the Career Development Center was fully functional with a motivated local staff to welcome guests.
The same goes for the IDC department. Both of the classrooms had a little make over and are looking better than ever. An experienced team of PADI Course Directors is eager to show candidates the PADI way of life and train them to become confident and capable Open Water Scuba Instructors.

 

What’s in it for candidates who decide to come to Gili Air this time around?

 

Wonderful Gili Air

Wonderful Gili Air

Experiencing Gili Air like it was 10 years ago: A peaceful and serene little island with a lot of positive vibes.
An abundance of marine life! Very little scuba diving activity in the past weeks did wonders for the underwater world.
A chance to contribute to the local economy and put a smile on the face of the beautiful local community.
The same excellent quality of education in the best IDC facilities on the 3 Gili Islands, with an open water training site only 10min by boat and two dedicated 20m+ training pools.
2 weeks complimentary fun diving and a chance to co-teach with the Oceans 5 instructors to put teaching techniques that are practiced during the IDC in a real life setting.

 

The Oceans 5 crew and Gili Air are ready to welcome candidates!
